Riso launches new two-colour duplicator

Riso has launched its ME9450 Digital Duplicator in the US market, which presumably means that it will shortly be available here in the UK. This is a fully automatic cut-sheet digital duplicator, producing two-colour documents in a single pass at rates of up to 150 pages per minute.

Duplicators are generally capable of handling longer runs than would be economical with a dry toner copier. The technology works by first printing a master sheet and then wrapping this around an ink drum. The drum turns at high speed, transferring the image to the paper which passes underneath.

The colour cylinders can be easily swapped out and there are up to 70 different colours to choose from. It has 600dpi resolution.

According to Riso, it has ‘advanced workflow capabilities to reduce pre-press and make-ready times by up to 50% over more traditional two-colour processes. Original documents can come in hard copy form or as electronic files from USB storage or the unit’s own internal disk.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
